Once, a long time ago, I walked down a night-darkened road called Firefly Lane, all alone, on the worst night of my life, and I found a kindred spirit. That was our beginning. More than thirty years ago. TullyandKate. You and me against the world. Best friends forever. But stories end, don't they? You lose the people you love and you have to find a way to go on. . . .

Tully Hart has always been larger than life, a woman fueled by big dreams and driven by memories of a painful past. She thinks she can overcome anything until her best friend, Kate Ryan, dies. Tully tries to fulfill her deathbed promise to Kate---to be there for Kate's children---but Tully knows nothing about family or motherhood or taking care of people.

Sixteen-year-old Marah Ryan is devastated by her mother's death. Her father, Johnny, strives to hold the family together, but even with his best efforts, Marah becomes unreachable in her grief. Nothing and no one seems to matter to her . . . until she falls in love with a young man who makes her smile again and leads her into his dangerous, shadowy world.

Dorothy Hart---the woman who once called herself Cloud---is at the center of Tully's tragic past. She repeatedly abandoned her daughter, Tully, as a child, but now she comes back, drawn to her daughter's side at a time when Tully is most alone. At long last, Dorothy must face her darkest fear: Only by revealing the ugly secrets of her past can she hope to become the mother her daughter needs.

A single, tragic choice and a middle-of-the-night phone call will bring these women together and set them on a poignant, powerful journey of redemption. Each has lost her way, and they will need each one another---and maybe a miracle---to transform their lives.

An emotionally complex, heart-wrenching novel about love, motherhood, loss, and new beginnings, Fly Away reminds us that where there is life, there is hope, and where there is love, there is forgiveness. Told with her trademark powerful storytelling and illuminating prose, Kristin Hannah reveals why she is one of the most beloved writers of our day.

Emotionally fulfilling and draining

..at the same time. Once you read "Firefly Lane", this is a must. Anyone who has gone through a major loss will recognize the highs and lows that follow the shock and initial grief. "Sometimes it hurts worse to be comforted than to be left alone"..truer worlds were never written.

This sequel to Kristin Hannah's Firefly Lane was so good! It has given me hope, and has taught me to love freely and to always remember the ones who have gone on before us.

Loved it!

I loved the characters! I loved "Firefly Lane" and " Fly Away" finished the whole story. At the end of " Firefly Lane" I felt the story needed to continue- so many things that had not been discussed or feelings expressed. " Fly Away" did that! Kristin Hannah touches my heart with her story telling!

Firefly Lane was the first Kristin Hannah book that I read and I absolutely loved it. Was excited to see this sequel, but it wasn't quite what I expected. A little disappointing.

This book really gave me a stomach muscle workout, it was just to emotional, depressing, I cried more than if I were at a funeral of a very close family member.
